Pathology~by Paul F. Lenzi





Artist Unknown

sadness turns into pathology

when tears flow unbidden

in rusty red rivulets

rutting the cheeks

when joy slips and slides

lost of handholds

on woe-heaving hearts

when smiles are stillborn

on quivering sighs

and hopelessness settles

its dullness in eyes

surrendered of light

when even strong judders

of anger and fear

fail to energize spines

and refocus the mind
